QOTD: "The Obama administration’s wider policy failures in the Middle East are significant, and they are partly the product of wishful thinking, partly the product of its narrow ideology, and partly the product of the fact that the American public to which he ultimately answers is itself incoherent on the question of what we should be doing there and how we should be doing it. But, even disinclined as I am toward being overly generous to President Obama, he is not the first president to underestimate the dangers and difficulties of the Middle East. The idea that the deaths in Benghazi, horrible though they were, would have been his undoing in the election if not for his administration’s disinformation campaign is probably wishful thinking. But for politicians of President Obama’s genus, truth is simply another multiple-choice proposition, and he and his people chose the version that best suited their immediate needs. One of the many problems with having a government dominated by law-school graduates is that lawyers suffer from a collective delusion that clever argument has a truth of its own, a unique moral weight independent of the facts. Recall that in the 1990s Bill Clinton was openly admired by Democrats for his deft touch with a lie: If you are winning, this line of thinking goes, then at some level you are also right.

In other words, the Obama administration did not mislead the American public about Benghazi out of political necessity; it misled the American public out of habit. And why wouldn’t it? From the economic effects of the stimulus bill to the GM bailout to blaming last quarter’s poor economic numbers on the fact that it is cold during the winter, the Obama administration has an excellent record for wholesaling fiction to the American electorate, which keeps enduring it. There is apparently enough collective intelligence in the Obama administration to hold in general contempt the wit and attention span of an American public that has elected it twice." --Kevin D. Williamson

Typical logic on this misogynist idiots thinking. Nothing like opening your mouth continually and proving you're a idiot.

and then came the assumptions
and the assumptions were without form
and the plan was completely without substance
and the darkness was upon the face of the workers

and they spoke amongst themselves, saying
“it is a crock of shit, and it stinketh”
and the workers went unto their supervisors and sayeth
“it is a pail of dung and none may abide by the odor thereof”
and the supervisors went unto their managers and sayeth unto them
“it is a container of excrement, and it is very strong,
such that none may abide by it

and the managers went unto their directors and sayeth
“it is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength”
and the directors spoke amongst themselves, saying one to another
“it contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong”

and the directors went unto the vice presidents
and sayeth unto them
“it promotes growth and is very powerful”
and the vice presidents went unto the president
and sayeth unto him
“this new plan will actively promote the growth and efficiency
of this company, and these areas in particular”
and the president looked upon the plan
and saw that it was good, and the plan became policy.
This is how shit happens.
